After brawling through the undead skeletal hordes, as our trio of heroes venture through the subterranean, forgotten tombs of the Barrow-downs, you'll take on the fallen Ranger and then, and only then will you be able to face the Barrow-wight Lord himself, destroying the Barrow-wight's power. Lord of the Rings: War in the North's boss battles don't mess around, it seems.

This latest trailer shows the boss battle you'll have to face, as you brave the foul minions of the Barrow-wight Lord, who has possessed a sacred Ranger burial ground. The nasty sod. You'll need to keep your Fellowship strong to defeat him, combining the battle-cry of the dwarf, the sword of the human and the staff of the elf.

Check out the brief boss battle trailer below, then muster thine courage for Lord of the Rings: War in the North when it launches on November 1st, 2011.

I Hope This Battle Isn't The Same As The One In Lotr: Return Of The King. Cause It Looks Pretty Similer Just More Fancy, Be Quite Dissapointed If They Reuse Ideas, Considering The Sheer Amount Of Content In The Lotr World.

@2 that's exactly what I thought after watchigng that trailer.

It does indeed look like your doing the same thing only it has fancier graphics and is in co-op :D

@3 Didn't LOTR: Return of the King have co-op? I think the Gamecube version did anyways.

Looks like a fun game. Now we need lotro to come to consoles :D

You people with the "milking franchise" arguments seriously are one of the most laughable groups around.

Get with the times kiddies. Things are getting released much faster than they were last generation. This is EVERYTHING from phone carrier upgrades to television peripherals all the way to theatrical to DVD release times being severely cut into game development happening on the fly.

Most of you are also forgetting we're in the generation of The Trilogy where in the past few years, more game sequels have been made 3 fold than in any gaming generation period. You want to jump into the next chapter right? Of those who read, who honestly reads the first chapter which assumed is amazing. Would you wait 2 years to get to the next one? No.
It's continuing stories and face it, the average console life is projected at about 5 years. Do you really want to have to buy a new system with every sequel for a game you love? I would hope not. Most of the ideas and inceptions are thought about, discussed and put into trial/effect beforehand as well so it's not like they threw these things together on whim.

Do your research people.

I'm just glad this isn't going to be like the that monstrously atrocious Conquest.

@ 1

It there anything in this world that satisfies you?

@ 6- Agreed. Conquest has me wary of any LOTR game and for a worry in the hope of Battelfront 3.

@1, i personally think they haven't done enough with this series, but i think cod needs to end.

LOTR conquest was fun, i am mad they closed the servers 9 months after the game came out. no achievements for me.

@#6: She always shows up in these threads and acts high and mighty. Ignore her.

On topic: The graphics look sub-par, but the concept is interesting enough.

What on Middle-Earth was that?

I've been enjoying every single LOTR trailer thus far, but this one seemed extremely mediocre.

Shouldn't deter my lust to get my grubby hands on this.

@ 10 - What if they're trying to go for the Valentines Box of Mystery Chocolate trick?

You know, where they lull you into a false sense of security with tasty looking chocolates and you get to the one with toothpaste in it?? Then you have to eat the rest just to get rid of the taste.

I plan on picking this up just because of my love for LOTR as a whole. But most likely will wait until next year when price drops.
